Our KACE Software Deployment folder is growing fast and i would need to move this folder to a new disk on the same Server.

What is the best way to this and what are the consequences?

I assume you mean the folder of the replication share.
The way is easy.
1. Disable the replication share under Distribution|Replication
2. Copy the repl2-folder to the new location. (old: c:\replication\repl2 to new: d:\new_replication\repl2 for instance)
3. Make sure that the rights are set correctly.
4. Go into the replication share under Distribution|Replication. Change the Destination-Share (from old: c:\replication to new: d:\new_replication) and Download-Share (if the new share has another share name)
5. Enable the replication share.
6. (optional, since this is done automaticly regulary) Force an inventory of the repl share under Distribution|Replication 

With the next inventory of the repl share the contents are verified and all agents start to get the packages without any problen.
